Management of couperosis and rosacea has been totally renewed by laser and vascular laser techniques, with efficacy targeted on the telangiectases and to a lesser extent on the erythrosis. Laser management of hypertrophic rosacea or rhinophyma depends on surgical treatment with decortication, continuous CO(2) ablative laser or Erbium, fractionated at high power, then vascular laser treatment for the telangiectases: lasers with pulsed dye, KTP, or pulsed lights for red laser telangiectases and… Expand

Using brimonidine 3 mg/g gel to target post-laser treatment ery thema is highly effective in minimising refractory erythema and increasing the visibility of other signs and symptoms of rosacea that may be present. Expand
Rhodamine intense pulsed light versus conventional intense pulsed light for facial telangiectasias
Whether r-IPL represents an effective and safe treatment for the most common superficial vascular alterations and could be advised as a first choice therapy for facial telangiectasias is determined. Expand
L'utilisation des lasers en dermatologie The use of lasers in dermatology
Albert Einstein is undoubtedly the father of lasers. But it is not until 1964 that the first dermatological lasers were introduced. The Nd-YAG laser, the CO 2 laser were developed by Kumar Patel. InExpand
Latent Demodex infection contributes to intense pulsed light aggravated rosacea: cases serial
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a good option for erythema and telangiectasia of rosacea and latent Demodex infection may act as a cofactor, but more attention is needed to attract more attention to IPL-induced rosace aggravation. Expand
Current Indications and New Applications of Intense
The nonablative nature of IPL makes it an increasingly attractive alter- native for patients unwilling to accept the adverse effects associated with other procedures, which additionally require prolonged absence from work and social activities. Expand

Microvasculature Can Be Selectively Damaged Using Dye Lasers: A Basic Theory and Experimental Evidence in Human Skin
An approximate, predictive model and data are proposed for the purpose of selecting a laser that maximized damage to cutaneous blood vessels and minimizes damage to the surrounding connective tissue and the overlying epidermis, and highly specific laser‐induced damage to blood vessels is demonstrated both clinically and histologically.
